DIO’s Future Defence Infrastructure Services (FDIS) has awarded a contract for housing and facilities management to Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) awarded the contract to provide housing and facilities management (FM) across defence estates. The CCS will begin work once current arrangements expire.

The contract forms part of a new framework which makes for easier access to a more diverse supplier base and better value for money for the taxpayer through leveraging government buying power. The next phase of the programme will award contracts for other estate work.

Jacqui Rock, Commerical Director of DIO, said: DIO spends around £3 billion every year buying infrastructure services for our armed forces both in the UK and overseas. These new contracts will form a significant part of this and will provide improved value for money for the taxpayer. They will also allow us access to a wider supply base including both large multinational companies and small and medium enterprises.”

Sam Ulyatt, CCS’s Buildings Strategic Commercial Director, said: “CCS has engaged extensively to design a framework structure which meets the needs of customers and incorporates social value. Our public sector contract has also been simplified to aid procurement for customers and suppliers alike.”

The next part of the project includes an invitation to tender for suppliers on the CCS contract. Competitions will take place later in the year for companies seeking a place on the DIO project.
